Truck driver Glen Gilberto Estien, 32, killed when cargo crushes him in freak accident on Narcoosee Road in St. Cloud
"It is very sad because he was trying to do the right thing and stop," friend Jose Santiago said. "Many people just keep driving."
Estien was heading north on Narcoossee Road just before 4 p.m. Wednesday, state troopers said, when he slammed on the brakes of the tractor-trailer he was driving to avoid hitting a firetruck coming out of a station on Yukon Street near St. Cloud.
A semi-truck driver was killed in a freak accident as he tried to stop for a fire truck. The 32-year-old semi driver slammed on the brakes so hard that beams on the trailer came crashing through the cab crushing him to death. Witnesses wonder if an emergency signal wasn't activated before the fire truck headed out for the emergency call.
